WHAT MAKES A VILLAIN?

ANVILUS NÖIRE: The Black Anvil, by whom souls are crushed! The Antipaladin, as the name suggests, stands in opposition to everything the Paladin stands up for. Fear and tyranny are his weapons, and they are as terrible and hideous as his great dark sword, Apollyon. Death stands at his right hand and war walks in the turbulence of his stride.

Antipaladin
A MAN OF DARK PRINCIPLES & DEEP EVIL

⬆ Being an antipaladin is more than just being a great fighter; It is about being a master of terror and a servant of greater evil, the enemies of A-nak. The terrifying Anvilus rules his dark minions with fear and an iron fist, or, shall we say, an obsidian-arnoured fist.

IT IS ALL ABOUT POWER.

As one of the greatest swordsmen in history, ANVILUS NÖIRE wields the hideous unholy sword, Apollyon, an ancient arcane artifact whose blade is a rip in the very fabric of the space-time continuum itself; However, this sword's most devastating power lies in its ability to access the powers and abilities of all the other arcane artifacts.

⬆ This fearsome warrior was once thought to be nothing more than a folk-tale from Varzuun's past, but he has appeared once again to thwart the plans of Flavius and friends, and threaten the sanctity of Varzuun with his tyranny.

This is the very first drawing of this character, from 2006.

Anvilus Nöire --- Pen & Ink, 2006

AntiPal-B/W


⬆ No one knows who he is, or how he is able to shadow Flavius and friends wherever they go. He has had several opportunities to kill them, yet he does not. What, then, are his ulterior motives and hidden agenda?

Within a year of the first draft, the look of the Anvilus character had evolved to his current form.

Anvilus found misadventure and mayhem far and wide across most of western Varzuun. Everywhere he went in those ancient and mystic places there were battles and monsters, havoc and war.
